Here’s a quick break down of severities and how they were found:

The bulk of advisories this month are software driver updates for graphics components and firmware/software updates for ethernet components. While you may be able to retrieve these updates direct from Intel, we recommend that you check with your system manufacturer for updates specific to your system. Find links to system manufacturer support sites HERE.
